Other poetry rings

I put a lot of work into these webring panels, in an attempt to make them aesthetically pleasing. And although they are now a litle large, I am fairly satisfied with the result.

The Magpie

Of all the birds, both foul and fair,
You stubbornly refused to wear

Full mourning at the Crucifixion,
And were cursed with this affliction:

Piebald broods of raucous young,
The devil’s laugh on every tongue.

The Elder

In the shadow of this tree,
Judas mapped his misery,

But saw no finger-post, save one:
A beckoning oblivion.

So up he climbed, with labored breath,
To where he could devise his death.

The twisted tree, by time distressed,
Would ratify his wretchedness,

And let him fall — his loss complete,
The seamless sky his winding sheet.
